“Silbar de boyero” by Osvaldo Pugliese y su Orquesta Típica with Roberto Chanel in vocals, 1944.
The singer himself tells us: «I always got along very well with Pugliese in spite of his political ideas.»
The researcher Nélida Rouchetto described him this way:
«With his nasal sound, his canyengue and his common man’s diction he kept alive the popular roots that gave rise to the city music. It was Chanel who identified himself like an orchestra instrument, in the manner of a viola, as can be verified since his first recording».
